Ups and downs. This weekend was full of them.
Down. Koda started acting funny on Thursday. Not eating much, lethargic and sulky. I kept a close eye on her, but when she didn’t hop out of bed for breakfast Friday morning, I knew something was wrong. I took her to the vet, where they asked to keep her overnight. My heart sank. She was dehydrated with a slight fever, but her blood work all came back normal, minus slightly elevated white blood cells. I picked her up Saturday morning without an official diagnosis. She’s not quite back to her old self yet, but she seems to be heading in the right direction. She has a swollen gland (I’m guessing) on the side of her neck and is on a regimen of antibiotics. I’m really worried about my sweet pup and just want her back to her hyperactive self.
Up. Hailey took a 3 hour nap! How do I make that a regular thing?
Down. Since Koda was on edge, I didn’t feel right going far from her, so sadly we missed a Halloween party we were looking forward to.
Up. We did, however, manage a dinner out, just the two of us this weekend. We went to one of our favorites, Restaurant X, and was floored when I opened up their menu to see that they used my pictures in their new menu. Flattered.
Down: David sliced open his finger. I’ll spare you the picture.
Up: It was worth it. A new brew! It’s called caribou slobber. Sounds delicious, no?
Down: Munchkin Meals won’t be this week. BUT I’m not dropping it. I’ve realized moms are busy people, so I’m going to host the link up the first Thursday of every month from here on out. November’s Munchkin Meals link up will focus on challenges you face feeding your little ones and how you’ve overcome them, or haven’t. I get a lot of feedback from people that LOVE clicking on your links, there just need to be more links for them to click! So I highly encourage you to join in.
Up: Georgia beat Florida!!
Down: I’m sure I’ll be made fun for buying a box of wine from Target. Surprisingly, it’s pretty decent and I love being able to just have one glass without opening a bottle.
Up: We found a fun new food that Hailey loves. Pomegranate arils! And they happen to be the perfect size.
Down: It’s official. I always spend more than I should at Target. How do such great prices nickel and dime their way past my grocery budget? Oh, maybe it’s that boxed wine. #sorryimnotsorry
Up: At least after my trip to Target I had all the fixins for a great lunch. Yes, fixins. I’m sure that makes me a bit southern in the accent vlog! I can’t remember the last time I bought deli meat, and I’m not sure why not. Hello buffalo chicken!
and I must end on two UPs in a row because exciting news…
UP: My bro, Kris, and his wife, Cara, announced they are expecting their first baby! I’m excited beyond belief that Hailey will have a new little cousin in May!
A cake a friend made for them… clearly we’re a family of dawg fans
Hope your weekend was more ups than downs, too!
